    I have a 52" deck on one of my Toro 117 Groundsmasters. The design of the deck and support frame is nearly identical to the 52" walk behinds. After hitting enough things (really not that many) I have to have the support pins on much lower holes on the right front compared to the other 3 corners. So essentially the right front of the deck is bent up as it is bent rearwards. Any suggestions on bending this deck back into allignment? The rest of the deck is straight as are the spindles. After I get it straightened I plan on welding angle iron to the deck to re-enforce it on the right side so it keeps its proper shape.
